The Ogun Chapter of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has requested that the Ogun Government repairs roads in Sango-Ota and its environs, to enable free-flow of traffic in the areas.
Mr Adekunle Oguntoyinbo, Sango-Ota Unit Commander of FRSC, disclosed in an interview in Ota on Friday that such palliative measures would reduce the suffering of those plying the road.
According to him, the bad state of roads in Sango-Ota and its environs has posed a great challenge for the FRSC officials in the unit and public in the area.
He said, “There is an urgent need for the State Government to come to the aid of the people by providing measures that will reduce their hardship,’’ he said.
Oguntoyinbo stated that the road networks in Sango-Ota and its environs were in a poor state, adding that they had become threats to the livese of those who ply the roads.
According to him, some of the bad roads are: Ota to Agbara, Sango to Owode, Owode to Ilaro, Owode to Ifo and Ifo to papa area.
Oguntoyinbo also said that longer, heavier vehicles easily tip over due to the nature of the roads.
He said, “This development has also affected business activities and contributed to gridlock the areas are experiencing’’.
He also enjoined companies in Sango-Ota and its environs to take proactive steps and not await the government before assist in developing where they made their revenues.
“Do the little you can to enable your businesses move on smoothly in the areas.’’
